Stroke – a Medical Emergency

The occurrence of a stroke is an emergency situation. You have to act immediately without any hesitation or waiting. In many cases, fast action can minimize the consequences of a stroke.
If someone around you shows any signs of stroke then dial 112
(the European emergency number) to reach the emergency services and fire brigade. That is the fastest way for the patient to arrive at the emergency department of the nearest hospital with adequate know-how and equipment, meaning a Stroke Unit. Even if the symptoms are transitory and disappear quickly, they are an important warning sign and should be medically dealt with immediately. A transitory ischemic attack is often the herald of an impending stroke.
